Girl Meets God : A Memoir (ISBN10: 0812970802; ISBN13: 9780812970807)

ISBN10: 0812970802

Summary: Like most of us, Lauren Winner wants something to believe in. The child of a Reform Jewish father and a lapsed Southern Baptist mother, she chose to become an Orthodox Jew. But as she faithfully observes the Sabbath rituals and studies Jewish laws, she finds herself increasingly drawn to Christianity. So, taking a courageous step, she leaves behind what she loves, and converts. Now the even harder part: How does one reinvent a religious self? How does someone embrace
the new without abandoning the old? How does a convert become spiritually whole?

In Girl Meets God this appealing woman takes us through a year in her young Christian life. Despite her conversion, Winner finds that her world is still shaped by her Jewish experiences. Attempting to reconcile the two sides of her religious identity, she applies the lessons of Judaism to the teachings of the New Testament, hosts a Christian seder, and struggles to fit her Orthodox friends into her new life. Ultimately she learns that religion takes practice and that belief is an ongoing challenge.

Girl Meets God, as honest a confession of faith as most of us will ever read, introduces a new literary voice: a spiritual seeker who is both an unconventional thinker and a devoted Christian. Like Anne Lamott's bumpy path to Christendom, the twists and turns of Lauren Winner's journey make her the perfect guide to exploring spirituality in today's complicated world.
